The environment changes for the better not through country-wide legislation or broad cultural shifts but rather by individuals changing their lives a little bit. What better place to start than with your trash can? If we reduce waste in our waste disposal, we’re well on our way to a better world.
A fantastic, simple option is Basket’s small trashcan. This is exactly what being green should be – a simple, inexpensive change that has a dramatic effect. In this case, the only difference between this trash can and a standard one is that it has loops on the sides. Rather than buy special garbage bags, you can use the loops to just put your grocery bag in, thus halving your plastic bag consumption.
